I was so blessed to be able to attend Celebrating Julia Child: Past & Present
It was Julia's 100th birthday, so it was time to celebrate French cuisine and the life of Julia Child. Chef Katsuya and Chef RJ showcased a "then and now" French celebration. Working off classic French recipes inspired by Julia Child they put a modern twist on the same dish. We watched as the two chefs prepared dishes in two completely different techniques, while sharing tips and tricks on how to modernize any dish.
For those of you that don't know Chef Katsuya and Chef RJ Cooper, Let me give you a few fun facts about each chef.
